Application Process for Snowy River Campus 2014 Print E-mail

The School for Student Leadership (SSL), previously known as the Alpine School operates three campuses:

  1. Alpine School Campus, Dinner Plain
  2. Snowy River Campus, Marlo
  3. Gnurad-Gundidj Campus, Glenormiston

Schools need to express interest, will be offered a team place with allocated gender numbers, and will then be able to select the team and develop the CLP in the knowledge they are "in"!


  • Download the expression form, see which campus and term your region/school is allocated to and send it to the Alpine Campus.

  • Schools can express interest in as many programs as they wish within the allocation for their region using the one form for the three campuses, and they should!
  • Country and metro regions will continue to be mixed at each campus each term.
  • Gender representation is still a key factor in a schools success. (Boys still need to be actively sought out to participate).
  • Schools will express interest in a program first and if successful in being allocated a place, then select a team and the team develop a Community Learning Project.

School for Student Leadership - Application & Selection Process

In Term 2 2013, all the expressions of interest for all the terms at all the campuses for 2014 will be accepted at Alpine Admins centre.

  • All the school places, team numbers and gender allocations will be offered at the start of Term 3 for 2014.
    Schools will be able to plan for their 2014 by Term 3 2013 knowing if they have a place, how many students in each team, and what gender mix to recruit for and at what campus.
  • The CLP is still a key feature of the program.
  • The CLP will only need to be developed IF a school has been successful in being offered a place.
  • Schools should use the development of the CLP and selection of their teams, to meet the mix offered, as a simultaneous exercise.
  • The new form uses a weighting for the selection of subsequent teams based upon the success of previous teams.
  • References will need to be sought from previous stakeholders-parents, students, teachers as to the needs of returning students and support structures in the home school.
  • Schools should download the SSL Expression of Interest - Application Form - 2014

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are four campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place". Our fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
